The paranoia of combatting terrorism

We see the surviving suspect of the Boston bombings about to be charged in the US, and this is good and proper and how it should be. But as has also been seen, this is not enough for some people. Some people scream “enemy combatant” and want everything changed, either because they are too authoritarian ...

Glad to be back home…

After a really good run home, we’re back in Coonabarabran. Nothing serious to report, just glad to be here! Back at work tomorrow, but that should be pretty easy. Got to write-up a few things here in the next couple of days, including my thoughts on the new movie “Oblivion”, the state of educational funding ...

History live as you watch

It’s always great when you tune in for an historical result. Being on holidays this morning, I got a Twitter tipoff that the US Masters golf was getting exciting, so I watched the last hour and saw Adam Scott’s victory. Nice work from the Aussie, and great to be able to see it live as ...
